Who's hosting Make it at Market season 2? 

The Repair Shop's Dominic Chinea is returning alongside his team of business and craft experts to try and help change the lives of some hopeful entrepreneurs who are looking to make some money from their hobbies.

Chinea has shared exactly how he feels about returning for another series. "I'm so excited to be back for a brand new series with our talented makers and mentors", he said. "We filmed during the summer months in beautiful Oxfordshire and it was such a creative environment. 

"The process was a real joy to be involved in, we met 30 incredible makers in total, from artists and designers to sculptors and woodworkers - a real eclectic mix. We worked hard to challenge the makers to unleash their untapped business potential and rediscover why they fell in love with the craft in the first place."

Who will we meet in Make it at Market season 2?

We'll be introduced to 30 makers in total in the new series of Make it at Market, the BBC has revealed. 

They include Des, an ex-teacher who is trying to make a career out of willow-weaving, Hayley, a mother who wants to build her family's fortune with an upholstery company, and Will, a color-blind pointillist artist.

Every maker will be paired up with expert mentors in their respective fields who'll assess whether these amateur craftspeople have what it takes to make cash, along with providing practical tips and tricks.  

The mentors will also put them through a couple of key tests: the High-Volume Challenge will see whether the makers can produce saleable items cheaply and quickly, while the High-End Piece will see them making a more time-intensive item made with expensive materials (which fetches a higher price tag!).

They'll also face a third challenge, where they'll identify their favorite piece which they love to manufacture... but will the makers' faves be profitable?
